Portugal: Suzy

Portugal Suzy

 

 

Suzy has won this year’s Festival Da Canção (where, in a less conventional turn, ten composers choose the performers for their songs), and will be taking Portugal to Copenhagen with the dancetastic Quero Ser Tua. Portugal took a hiatus from the competition last year – and the last twenty have been no less rocky, with a string of acts failing to make it to the final, two years of relegation, and one sad case of nil points.
Suzy was a member of children’s band Onda Choc and has kept her musical vibes flowing since: perhaps you don’t know her 1999 hit Nesta Noite Branca yet, but if you like it, and Quero Ser Tua, then watch out for the album she’s producing with her Eurovision composer, Emanuel.

I want to bathe
In your body of pleasure

Well, fine Suzy, if you say so I’m sure many viewers won’t object – but that and your samba moves aren’t going to distract entirely from the quality of your vocals (although those Ryan Dolan–inspired drummers might do the trick, for various reasons). The real competition here is which backing dancer can exert the most energy before the scarily powerful close. Next stop: The Manuel Ortiz Show.

Contagious rating: 7/10

 

I Want to Be Yours

On my wings
I want to take you to the sky
And on thousand clouds
Give you all that I have

I want to be
Your passion cupid
I want to be
The owner of your heart

I want to be yours, OH OH OH OH OH!
I want to be yours, OH OH OH OH OH!
I want to be yours like the sun is of its light
I want to be yours like a river is of its sea

I want to be yours, OH OH OH OH OH!
I want to be yours, OH OH OH OH OH!
I want to be yours like the honey of your kiss
I want to be yours I was born to love you

I want to be the light
That guides your way
I want to take you
To the sweet world of tenderness

I want to bathe
In your body of pleasure
And satisfy
My thirst for you

I want to be yours, OH OH OH OH OH!
I want to be yours, OH OH OH OH OH!
I want to be yours like the sun is of its light
I want to be yours like a river is of its sea

I want to be yours, OH OH OH OH OH!
I want to be yours, OH OH OH OH OH!
I want to be yours like the honey of your kiss
I want to be yours I was born to love you

UAUAUÉ! UAUÉ!
UAUAUÉ! UAUÉ!

I want to be yours, OH, yours!

I want to be yours, OH OH OH OH OH!
I want to be yours, OH OH OH OH OH!
I want to be yours like the sun is of its light
I want to be yours like a river is of its sea

I want to be yours, OH OH OH OH OH!
I want to be yours, OH OH OH OH OH!
I want to be yours like the honey of your kiss
I want to be yours I was born to love you
